'Govt plans enforcement cell to check illegal constructions'

New Akrama-Sakrama scheme after cabinet approval: Minister

State Minister for Urban Development Department S Suresh Kumar

State Minister for Urban Development Department S Suresh Kumar told media persons here on Thursday that the government has a proposal to set up Enforcement Cells in all city corporations in the State. A decision will be taken in this regard soon, he said adding that the Cell will function to initiate action against builders who violate norms. Expressing concern over illegal constructions in the city, Minister said that action could not be initiated against violators since many of them had obtained stay from the courts. Meanwhile, some of them have filed application for regularisation under Akrama-Sakrama Scheme, he added.

Talking about the revised Akrama-Sakrama Scheme for Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), Kumar said that the new scheme has not been announced yet. The Cabinet Sub Committee led by Transport Minister R Ashok will study the pros and cons of the scheme and it will be announced only after the approval in the cabinet, he said adding that the new scheme will be extended to other city corporations in the State depending on possibilities.

C&R Rules Amendment
The Minister said that a final draft for the amendment of Cadre and Recruitment (C&R) Rules will be made available to the people concerned by October. Suggestions will be invited from individuals and organisations with regard to inter-office transfers and promotions, he said adding that a final decision will be taken in November.

To a query on allegations of misappropriations in the work of Solid Waste Management Plant in Pachanadi in the city, the Minister said that the Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation (KUIDFC) has submitted a report on the issue. Action will be taken against contractors and engineers responsible for the same, he assured.
